Information

It was built between 1756 and 1773 and founded by the Ninth Entailer Jan Jakub Zamoyski. In 1784 Zamość Knights Hospitallers suffered the same fate as Saint Clare sisters, Franciscans and members of the Order of the Reformati, i.e. their monastery was closed down. For some time the building housed the “Pod Karpiem” inn, hence the common name of the building is “Podkarpie”. In the one-storey, four-wing building with a yard inside the southeastern corner stands out a little; this part housed the Knights Hospitallers’ monastery once.

At present the former church, monastery and hospital house flats.
